Taysiders have united to give tragic mum Marie Low “the send off she deserves”.
Marie, 36, died last week after an altercation in the Douglas area of Dundee.
Emergency services rushed to the scene on Ballantrae Terrace but attempts to save the mother-of-four were unsuccessful.
A 30-year-old woman has since appeared in court in connection with the death.
Neighbours and people throughout the region expressed their horror at the violent incident which occurred in the middle of the afternoon as children played in the street.
The Courier previously revealed a fundraiser had been launched in the aftermath of the tragedy to fund Marie’s funeral costs.
Family member Natalie Maclean was inspired to “give Marie the send off she deserves”.
More than £1000 has now been raised in just under a week by generous locals.

“Marie would be absolutely loving it — that people care this much.
“A lot of people say Dundee is a horrible place, but it’s not.
“This is what happens when everyone comes together.
“This will help a lot.”
